Saudi forces yesterday shot down an unidentified toy drone that hovered over a Riyadh neighbourhood home to royal palaces, state media said, prompting a security alarm in the capital.
"At 1950 a security checkpoint in Khuzama neighbourhood of Riyadh spotted a small remote-controlled drone," the Saudi Press Agency reported. SPA added that security forces shot down the drone and authorities were investigating the incident. The statement follows unconfirmed reports on social media of heavy gunfire around royal palaces.
But authorities firmly denied any major security breach.
